CapDI technology is used in many types of commercial applications, such as commercial laundry, automotive paint lines, agriculture and horticulture, and as a water softener for businesses and industries. CapDI delivers cleaner water that eliminates corrosion and scaling issues caused by hard water.
The robust, reliable water treatment systems offered by Voltea incorporate fully automated self-cleaning with dynamic control ensuring the water produced is of consistent high quality, adjusting to varying concentration of feed constituents.
Ion exchange softeners require frequent regeneration, and when doing so release sodium and chloride into the water table. This damages the environment, is a health concern among those with sodium restricted diets, causes corrosion of piping infrastructure, and damages appliances. Voltea’s CapDI technology provides a water softening solution that is both user friendly and chemical-free. Fundamentally different than merely managing hardness in water, CapDI also extracts sodium and other ions. From small appliances to large commercial applications, CapDI is the obvious technology choice.
Voltea’s IS systems have the ability to reclaim up to 95% of pre-treatment wastewater from automotive paint lines and other coating processes. To achieve the highest quality required of these coating lines, clean water is mandatory. CapDI placed after conventional particulate filtration methods tunably reduces TDS enabling automotive and other coating manufacturers to reduce their municipal water demand, as well as move toward a zero waste liquid discharge goal.
These features, coupled with Voltea’s remote monitoring solutions minimize maintenance and allow manufacturers to focus on their core business of producing world-class automobiles and other high quality painted and coated products. The modular nature of the IS systems enable their placement line-side to processes, both incorporating into other pre-existing recycling systems, as well as offering stand alone operation.
With a growing world population and stricter water use controls, the demands on horticulture are ever increasing. Too much sodium in irrigation water causes crop damage, yield loss, and hampers water and fertilizer reuse. CapDI tunably removes and controls TDS and sodium levels without removing all minerals, allowing users to select the optimal level of sodium and minerals for each crop’s irrigation water. Horticulture businesses benefit from using CapDI by its low energy consumption, no required chemicals, minimal maintenance, as well as overall reduced water and fertilizer consumption. Treating your irrigation water with CapDI will improve crop yield while lowering operational costs.
In commercial laundry, TDS levels above 750 ppm causes dull, gray linens, so effective use of recycled laundry water has been limited by the inability to affordably and reliably remove TDS at high temperatures. Current technologies, such as RO, require water to be cooled before TDS removal, which means it must then be reheated for laundering. This expensive, time-consuming process is no longer necessary with the addition of CapDI.
The removal of TDS at laundering temperatures allows Voltea customers to realize exceptional operational, chemical, and energy costs savings. Commercial laundries across the globe have reduced their total water consumption significantly by implementing CapDI. This technology recovers up to 95% of the water it treats, delivering whiter, brighter linens at high temperatures (140°F/60°C). Voltea reuse solutions work across all laundry intakes; healthcare, hospitality, uniforms/industrial, and food & beverage.
CapDI for Commercial Laundry Brochure
Voltea’s CapDI experts have developed technology and performance metrics so methodically that our predicted performance data graphics are near perfectly in-line with actual results of each system we install. This allows launderer’s to make accurate estimates of laundering times, water usage, and TDS removal while running the CapDI system. Similar data graphics are also made to represent each launderer’s current treatment system without CapDI, allowing detailed business case analysis to show just how effectively our technology can help the facility.
Key factors go into determining the size of the industrial system for a customer. Factors include flow rate, power, water temperature, and TDS removal requirements. Simple modular design provides the flexibility to treat a few mL/min up to thousands of m3/hr in a compact footprint.
